Yeah, but.......the part of the article dealing with procurement issues
rang pretty true.......at least in my limited experience.
POGO writers frequently have good points and include solid information, they also do not hide their lights under bushels so the good content in their articles can often feel like it's reinforcing a bias rather than informing a position. Th is program certainly has plenty of "this is what not to do" moments and absolutely should be examined in order to inform and teach so that the process can be improved, but calling them "...not tin cans so much as over-larded, cruiser-sized, titanium canisters" is both very inaccurate and generally neither useful nor helpful when evaluating either the ships or the process. The author also seems to misinterpret, deliberately or not, quotes and events from the program's troubled past in order to portray the present condition of the program as an inevitable outcome. That's problematic for any number of reasons, and it's hard to overlook when trying to evaluate the rest of the piece.

An extremely powerful piece.  We must make sure that everyone who defends and represents their nation in this manner get the very best support and equipment possible.  Something that has not been the case and is not the case now sadly.
